going home

West Coast (will secretly always be the) Best Coast



It’s been a few weeks since I’ve flown back to Sydney but I must say Oregon, you’ve done it yet again. You’ve managed to leave me with nothing but sweet memories and a heart that longs for more. There were still people I wanted to meet and places I wanted to go but at some point I had to stop trying to squeeze everything in.  My dear friend and cousin had to remind me to just go with the flow. If I preoccupy myself with trying to plan life I will definitely miss living it.

So, with that said, thank you so much Oregon for one of the best (and shortest) weeks I’ve had in a while. Miss you heaps. Here’s to another (and hopefully soon) merge in our paths.

Stay golden.

Oh The Places I'll Go!

So it’s the night before my big trip and a part of me still cannot believe I am here! I am finally on my way home (Cue the lyrics from The Head and the Heart’s “Down In the Valley”). It’s been twenty years coming and the time has finally returning to Nigeria. While my older brothers and sister were born and raised there for a few years, after the birth of my twin brother and I we moved to Sydney, Australia. Six years following our move to Australia we then packed our bags to leave to America. Needless to say, I’ve been quite busy since my initial departure.

I am beyond excited, apprehensive, curious, and joyous.
